Connect 2 congress: visual analytics for civic oversight
Strong representative democracies rely on educated, informed, and active citizenry to provide oversight of the government. We present Connect 2 Congress (C2C), a novel, high temporal-resolution and interactive visualization of legislative behavior. We present the results of focus group and domain expert interviews that demonstrate how different stakeholders use C2C for a variety of investigative activities. The evaluation provided evidence that users are able to support or reject claims made by candidates and conduct freeform, low-cost, exploratory analysis into the legislative behavior of representatives across time periods. Keywords Information Visualization, E-Government, Voting Analysis, Poole-Rosenthal, Roll Call Analysis ACM Classification Keywords H5.m. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): Miscellaneous. General Terms Human Factors
